Innovating Phil McKinney's HP Retirement Party

When you put together a kick-ass innovation team, be careful as they will take that innovation skill and apply it to your retirement party.  As you can see from the image, the team decided to take some license when it came to the cake.  The entire thing is edible (yes – even the devices).
